If you can't work with Ubuntu, it's not the fault of Ubuntu but your own fault. Not understanding Ubuntu and not willing to learn Ubuntu and do things which can't be done with Ubuntu are the faults of the users. A computer does nothing without a user who gives the command's.


So basically what you're saying is that one OS can't be better or worse than any other OS? :roll:


No, basically i say is that 99,9% of everything what goes wrong is the fault of the user. that 0.1% is de OS and it doesn't matter which OS it is. Computers are stupid machines which can't do nothing on their own, they need human input. Even een programmable logic controller neds human input otherwise it's just a piece of worthless plastic and wires.

If someone has problems with Ubuntu (or any other OS) it's NOT the OS to blaim, but the user.

Oh, I didn't know that. So, let me think... when, in the not so remote past, Windows 95 used to greet me with the cute blue screen, it was my fault... When Windows 3.11 used to complain of a general protection fault, it was not Windows fault. Finally, but not least, when I purchased my first computer back in December 1994, and got a faulty Pentium 1 chip notwithstanding I made it a point with the supplier, that I knew of the infamous Pentium 1 bug, it was also my fault... :roll: :? :shock:

Oh, again another enlightening piece of philosophy that makes the early Greeks green with envy. :mrgreen:
Ubuntu used to greet me with crashing programs... If it were my fault, it would have been because, I was a developer for Ubuntu without my knowledge!

Not understanding Ubuntu and not willing to learn Ubuntu and do things which can't be done with Ubuntu are the faults of the users.

Nah, Ubuntu tastes too bad for my taste buds!!! It stinks of sudo treating me as if I had no brain...
If wanted a system paranoid about its user, I would be still using Windows, but NO, I wanted a system that treats its users with dignity and that didn't made the assumption that all human beings must be zombies.

A computer does nothing without a user who gives the command's.

... and what about the kernel's scheduler and the daemons running in the background?

Edit: to correct an error.
Debian == { > 30, 000 packages }; Debian != systemd

Hello I'm new in this town!

I'm a former Ubuntoo knockoff user that has converted to Debian - if for no other reason it is easier to spell.

I was wondering if it is safe to say MINT LMDE in here or should I run and hide? :?

A little bit about me if it means anything.
My computer skills is almost as good as my driving skills, but then it should be noted that some folks think I should be forced to ride the bus -if there was one around here. Then again I think those people are so full of you-know-what that they could power a small cook stove if I could just get the nozzle to stay in the right place. Just because I'm a cowboy in a small town does not mean that I am the type of person that would cause a firing squad to want to re-load. With that said, I don't want to use W*nd*w$ because I don't want to feel like a sheep.

Greetings from Oklahoma I hope you don't run me off. :D

It is safe to say LMDE here, but since your OS is Linux Mint, and not Debian, be sure to post in the Offtopic section if you have any issues with it.

Hi, welcome to Debian and the forums,

Everyone here was new at one point, most have come from using any number of other distros, some from using other OS's too.
There is lots of useful information - start with http://www.debian.org and go from there.

Funny! :mrgreen:
OK, so Ubuntu has became a computer too!

So, bugs in applications and operating systems, are all the users' fault.

I suggest you use Windows for some time dude, as there are no problems with it. It's just the user who makes mistakes right?

Since today i become a member of this forum. I'm not totally new with linux, i'm using since 2007 Ubuntu linux. I started with version 7.04, switched to 7.10 and after that i installed the 8.04 LTS version. Never used the following version, only tried 9.10 for a short period because i bougth a new pc which had hardware that was not supported by 8.04. Since april this year i am using 10.04 LTS. In my early "personal computer era", it started almost 20 years ago, i started with MS-DOS version 3.3, switched to 5.0 and ended with version 6.22 in combination with Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11. From 1995 i had Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000 and i ended my Windows era with Windows XP in 2007 when got a copy of Ubuntu 7.04.

I live in The Netherlands and i work as a piping engineer. Just a small fact, my nickname is my real name. Even for the Dutch my name is rare. It's very uncommon in Holland, i'm original from the northern part of Holland.

Nomko


Welcome!!

Merry Chrismas and a Happy New Year!
